ELMHURST, Ill. – After the outstanding finish at The Summit League Championship over the weekend, 10 Centenary swimmers were named either first or second team all-league.


For the Gents, nine members of the squad were named second team all-conference after finishing second in their respective event. Rourke Barrett swam the 400-yard freestyle, John Cefalu competed in the 200-yard medley relay, while Peter Henry and Chase Lambert placed second in the 400-yard freestyle relay.


The final five swimmers to be named second team were Caleb McSorley, who was also a member of the 200-yard medley relay, while Bryan Myers placed second in three events, which also includes the 200-yard medley relay. Josh Pena, who broke a school mark on Saturday swimming anchor in the 400-yard freestyle relay also took second team honors. Peter Henry and Devin Ross, meanwhile, were a part of a second place showing in the 200-yard freestyle and medley relays.    


On the women’s side, junior Jessica Brown, who won the only event for Centenary was named first team all-conference. Brown swam the 100-yard butterfly in a time of 56.28 despite her goggles falling off in mid-swim.


Myers and Peter Henry were both a part of five total records, while John Cefalu, Rourke Barrett, along with Pena were all a part of three total records. Myers was also the first person in Centenary history to go under 21.00 in the 50 free, and the first swimmer in Centenary history to go under 20.00 on a relay.


Maddie Wyatt was a part of eight total records, Leslie Clampitt was a part of five and Brown four. 


First-place finishers in final events will make the first team and second-place finishers will make the second team. If a second team member finishes in first-place in a later event, they will become members of the first team, thus removing their second team status.
